Last week The Home Depot Foundation and our local store generously donated "Community Buckets" to Songcatchers and other nonprofit organizations in New Rochelle to help us continue to operate safely during the coronavirus pandemic. Each bucket contained cleaning supplies, masks, and gloves. Paper towels, hand sanitizer, and cases of water were distributed, too. Home Depot's management team and store associates were on hand in front of City Hall, genuinely interested in how we were doing during the pandemic, and to offer their help loading our cars.
“Giving back and doing the right thing are two of the core values at The Home Depot,” expressed John McLean, New Rochelle’s Home Depot store manager. “We’re grateful for Mayor Bramson’s encouraging support and we’re proud to work alongside the city to provide essential supplies for our community, during this time.”
This project is a part of The Home Depot Foundation’s commitment to supporting local communities. During this global pandemic, the organization has contributed more than $50 million and taken other steps to support the communities it serves. The Home Depot also donated millions of dollars in personal protective equipment (PPE) and other products to hospitals, health care providers and first responders.
